Remove the alternator and have it checked. If it checks out ok, replace the voltage regulator.

Why are my interior and exterior light flickering and diming .

Most likely the earth connection. Check all earth wiring, first and foremost check if the lights are powered from the same fuse! If that is the case remove the fuse, clean all contacts and replace with a new fuse! Happy motoring.

2000 mitsubishi diamante has spark has fuel up to the injectors and power but wont start.

At injector's, need to check if you have ground pulsation, to check, connect test light on pos (+) battery terminal, now your set to check ground, at injector harness, probe wire's, while some one cranks engine, look for pulsation, if you don't have pulsation, it will need a computer, injector pulsation is control by the computer, if no pulsation, then no fuel can get into cylinder.
